I am a Research Associate and Laboratory Manager in the Food System Integrity team. I am currently working on anaerobic microbes associated with food spoilage and developing RT-PCR assays.
My passion for science saw me complete my BSc and MSc at the University of Otago. I have been at AgResearch for 14 years and have previously worked in the Infectious Diseases and Rumen Microbiology teams before joining my present team in 2017.
